March 6-- The City of Soperton is apologizing to its residents for delays in garbage pickups for the past three weeks.
The city garbage truck is being repaired and the city is contracting with Republic Services for garbage collection until the truck can be returned to service.
Accordingly, garbage pickup in Soperton will occur only on Thursday and Friday this week.
If the truck is repaired this week, normal garbage pickup will resume starting Monday. Otherwise, the Thursday-Friday pickup will occur again next week.
